Academic Outreach

Concurrent Enrollment

Rose State College provides opportunities for students to get a head start on college by earning college credit while they are still in high school. High school juniors and seniors who meet policy requirements can participate in concurrent enrollment. These concurrent programs help high school students meet high school requirements and can give them an advantage when competing for scholarships and admission to four-year universities. Successful completion of college course work demonstrates that students are capable of the academic rigor college demands.  Each high school senior who meets the eligibility requirements for concurrent enrollment shall be entitled to receive a tuition waiver equivalent to the amount of resident tuition for a maximum of six (6) credit hours per semester.  Students are responsible for the fee portion of payment.

Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment classes are college level classes offered to high school students for both high school and college credit.  Dual enrollment students are enrolled for classes at both the high school and the college.  While students earn high school credit, they also earn college credit, therefore reducing duplicated classes.  Rose State College credits are recorded on a permanent college record and transcript.  High schools are responsible for recording high school credits.

Course Offerings

Concurrent students have several options for taking courses.  Students may attend courses offered on the Rose State College campus, online, and courses offered off the Rose State College campus on the high school campus or via Interactive Television (ITV).  Concurrent students may not enroll in remedial (zero-level) course work offered by Rose State College designed to remove high school deficiencies.
